Conquest....

Someone I know has been agonizing over taking one particular professional exam for months now. She has worried about it, studied for it, taken a mock exam...and still continued to worry. I was wondering when she would stop thinking about how she would do on it, and take it,at last...because I was convinced that she would pass WFC...With Flying Colours. The trouble, and the psychological block of this exam is, that the pass mark is 85%!

Also, if she passed it, the company for which she works would pay the exam fees, otherwise, she would have to do so...

....So she finally did take it last week. And passed. (She got 196/200 but that I think may not be very material to her, though it's the kind of performance that I thought she would achieve, all along.)

The perception of a tough peak ahead is often more daunting to a mountaineer than the peak itself....

Very happy for shortindiangirl.

The only thing I really miss...

Had a somewhat hectic weekend, with the JLRNTP, an excellent photography workshop by kalyan and the monthly QuizFamilies meet (which this time was a lunch quiz)....I never missed being off the net, but one thing I do have to catch up on is...friends' posts on both LJ and Blogger...and there is so much of interesting stuff that I feel frustrated that I don't have the time to consider them and write commments. Me, I love to talk!

So instead of my opinions or more words...here's a nice picture of Mr Bill and Ms Coo, on a balcony somewhere in my area....





I read somewhere once, "How nice if we were oviparious instead of viviparous...if we wanted to, we could have children, if we didn't want to, we could have breakfast!"

Have you had a Shek?

How conveniently placed this Devnarayan Badam Shek Ice Cream Center (note American spelling) is...






It's right in front of the Dheeksha Healthcare Centre, which presumably, will be required as the Shek makes its way down the consumer's system.....

And in case you thought a Shek was a big fat-nosed genial anti hero of a recent animated hit movie, you have your spelings orl rong....
